In the two weeks since our last post, we’ve been very very busy. What we’ve been working on primarily:
The Cyber Crime Survey
A few weeks ago, we sent out an email to the HTCIA listserv. We wanted our members to take a survey regarding their experience with digital forensics and cyber crimes, including the state of their training, equipment, and information sharing.
The results were very interesting, some confirming ideas we already had and others that came as a surprise. We can’t discuss them yet — the report is still in draft form and in the approval process — but we’ll be releasing in conjunction with Techno Security in just the next couple of weeks, and we’ll be sure to talk about it then!
Our call for papers ended on April 30 as advertised, and since then, conference chair Duncan Monkhouse has been working with speaker committee chair Jimmy Garcia to go through all the proposals. Many of the topics look intriguing, and our hope is that the speakers will be willing to share a little bit more about them here on the blog, before they present.
In short, we expect to be able to announce some very cool stuff here in the near future, so if you haven’t already, please subscribe now — and please ask your friends and colleagues to as well!
